We’ve been getting involved in #waterwednesday on Twitter for a few months now, and have had some great feedback and tips from businesses and consumers alike this year. Here is a summary of a few tips and tweets that caught our eye:
Our tips and tweets about Water Wednesday…
- Save Water by having a shower daily instead of a bath, saving about 40% of water used!
- Water Tip: Bought a new dishwasher? They’re more efficient & pre-rinse for you so no need to rinse dishes under the tap 1st
- Our Tip: Water your garden at the coolest point of the day to avoid the water evaporating.
- Next time you boil eggs use the cooled leftover water for your plants & the nutrients in the shells is also good for them!
- Our #waterwednesday tip: Install water butts to collect water in wet months to use in summer months. Big bin to catch rain water works too.

Soothing Showers, a British based company promoting a natural beauty regime, tweeting about showering, grooming and aromotherapy.
- Save #water by ensuring you are turning the tap off properly every time you leave the bathroom or kitchen!
- Avoid flushing cotton wool & make-up tissues. Throwing them in the bin reduces the #water that’s wasted by every flush.
- Try and have shorter #showers – it is both better for your #skin and prevents it from drying out, and saves #water!

- Save 150 gallons (and $!!!) each month by shortening your shower just 1 or 2 minutes. We’re rooting for you!
